|Damn you, George RR Martin!|
So, I thought, I'll just add an extra r to the word. Asharra. That works. Until I Google it and find
another fantasy novel using it: "The Winds of Asharra" by R. Leigh. And it's not just a character, it's the name of their world. Arrrrrgh!
So now I have to scrap the name entirely and start from scratch. Phooey.
